The MathEdCollective: Collaborative Action in an Era of Cyberbullying and Hate

The Mathedcollective, Laurie Rubel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Critical mathematics educators and organizations in the United States have become the target of cyberbullying and hate-based attacks. These attacks usually involve the same pattern, in which numerous hate-based organizations echo shallow soundbites about an educator's publication or an organization's policy document, inviting readers to attack with hate mail demanding that specific individuals be terminated from their position. In this paper, we present the MathEdCollective, which came together in the last year to create a unified voice from the U.S. mathematics education community to document these attacks, call for collective action, and create an organized online network as a line of defense.
